U.S. reach Copa America semis with 2-1 win over Ecuador

(Reuters) – The United States survived a late onslaught to beat Ecuador 2-1 & advance to the semi-finals of the Copa America for the first time since 1995 after a pulsating & sometime fractious match in Seattle on Thursday.

Clint Dempsey & Gyasi Zardes scored for the U.S. either side of half time & Michael Arroyo received one back for Ecuador in a game that saw one player from each side sent off & the Ecuador coach banished to the stands.
